It was discovered in 1634, it dates back to the third century. It’s made up of a series of tunnels with inscriptions, symbols and signs. Therein it’s located Saint Mustiola’s original sepulchre, where the Saint was buried in 274. Over this tomb, during the fifth century, was built a cathedral , then rebuilt in 728 and demolished during the XIXth century. The crypt is the heart of the structure: it probably was an ancient tomb of a family that later became Christian. From here start out the tunnels , that are supported by arch structures made of brick. In the back of the crypt there’s an altar , behind which stands an ancient cathedra , and on the right there an inscription in marble on the tomb of the first bishop of Chiusi, Lucio Petronio Destro, that died in 322. The most ancient inscription is that of Redenta, that died in 290.
